Many of you many not know that 95% of the
supplements on the market are synthetic, meaning that they are created
in a lab. The remaining 5% are created using organic whole foods.
Essentially food in concentrated form, a super food of sorts.

is a subtle but crucial difference between synthetic supplements,
organic vitamins and whole food supplements. Supplements and/or
vitamins, neither synthetic no organic, were intended to be taken in

A great example of a whole food supplement is
acerola cherry powder. The acerola cherry is a rich source of Vitamin
C. Basically, the cherries are dried and crushed to create a powder
which is mixed into water or juice. As far as your body is concerned
you are eating handful of cherries which are full of Vitamin C!

of us know that the orange is a great food source of Vitamin C. The
reason is that every other substance in the orange works
synergistically with the Vitamin C in the body for maximum absorption.
A plain Vitamin C tablet usually does not contain these other
'co-factors' which allow your body to reap maximum benefit.

if we are eating a well rounded diet of veggies, fruits, grains,
legumes, dairy, eggs, and meats and avoiding white sugar, processed
products and denatured foods then we should be getting all of the
vitamins we need.

The reality is that most of us are not doing this and even if we were we would probably not be getting what we need. Why not?

of all, all of us as individuals have unique nutritional requirements
based on our genetics, lifestyle, diet and environmental stress.
Believe it or not genetics can play a role in how much say, Vitamin A,
you require. Even if you have a wonderful diet full of whole
unprocessed foods...

much of the soil on our farmlands
has been so depleted that what looks like spinach in 2008 probably
bears little resemblance nutritionally to spinach from 1950.

The caveat to this, of course, is produce that is grown organically

this modern era of focus on diet and nutrition...organics, vitamins and
supplements have become a hot topic. It is all at once easy to get
hopelessly confused or to completely ignore the overload of information
on the subject of vitamins both in food and in supplement form.

can become overwhelming to over think your diet and nutrition but it is
not something to be ignored. While we can live without enough of a
certain vitamin for a while, in the long term a vitamin deficiency is a
precursor to all sorts of health problems.

For example,
Vitamin D deficiency is being linked to cancer, heart disease,
susceptibility to colds and flus and a host of other problems. Most
people who eat a typical American diet tend to be deficient somewhere.

factor that depletes our vitamin stores is stress, a.k.a. a busy hectic
lifestyle, not enough sleep, lack of exercise, and toxins in our
households and our surrounding environment. So what about taking
vitamin supplements, and more importantly why should you choose an
organic vitamin?

A high-quality, organic, vitamin
supplement made from food can be a wonderful way to ensure that your
body is getting what it needs.

Granted supplements are not a substitute for a quality diet rich in whole foods, they can be a wise addition to any diet.

good quality organic vitamin or supplement has the power to help your
body heal through an illness or simply to act as an insurance policy of
sorts to prevent future illness.
